Damages in a bus accident lawsuit 

One of the primary roles of personal injury lawyers is to identify the potential damages in each case. The damages in a bus crash can be severe given the size of the bus, the high speed they can travel at, and the lack of safety restraints for passengers.  

There are two types of damages in a bus crash accident: economic damages and non-economic damages. It is easy to assign a value to economic damages. They are typically represented by medical bills or vehicle repair costs. Common examples of economic damages are medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages are speculative and do not have inherent value. The most common example of non-economic damages is pain and suffering. The most common damages recovered in an Alhambra bus accident include: 

  • Medical bills and future medical costs 
  • Lost wages 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Diminished future earning capacity 
  • Property damage 
  • Loss of consortium 
  • Permanent disability

Dealing with insurance  

Bus companies are required to properly insure their vehicles, which can lead to negotiating directly with an insurance company regarding a potential settlement. It is important to keep in mind, however, that an insurance company is not your friend. They will work tirelessly to shave off any amount of a settlement they can. In fact, negotiating with an insurance company without the help of a personal injury attorney can put your entire claim at risk.  

A common tactic used by insurance companies is to send a settlement offer immediately after an accident. This offer is typically small and rarely covers anything more than emergency room expenses. If you accept a small settlement early on in the process, you cannot come back later for more money. This becomes a problem when your treatment drags on. In this situation, you could wind up on the hook for thousands of dollars of medical bills.
